Should I fight a 1st Offense DUI?
I recently had a client come in with a 2nd DUI, while he was awaiting trial on a 1st Offense DUI in a different county. He told me he was being represented by a different lawyer on the first case and couldn't afford to hire him to represent him on the new DUI. He told me his first lawyer told him that he could win the first case by fighting it and that he was charged $5,000. He demonstrated bad driving, failed all the field sobriety tests, and blew a .13 in the first DUI. In the second DUI, he did OK on the field sobritey tests and refused to take the breath test.
